What a Journey so far!!
Myles Pollard’s Intensive and Master class workshops, have been hands down one of the most profound and life changing events of my life.

After finishing the classes, I headed straight for New York City. After spending a year there working as both an actor and a High Fashion Photographer, I returned home to regroup and continue my training.

TAFTA’s 20-week full-time course is my next stop. Thanks to an intense one on one prep session with Myles before my audition, I am extremely proud to say I have been accepted, and my life is continuing to travel in a direction I have only ever dreamed was a possibility.

Myles’s unique gift is an extremely rare one. Not just as an Actor, but as a Teacher and a Mentor, and I am eternally grateful for being on the receiving end of such a gift.

I would like to highly recommend Myles Pollard Acting Workshops for children. Our son Gabe has attended the one-day children’s acting course and the invitation Master class
which was held on 2 consecutive days. He is a true source of inspiration and education for kids who have a passion for acting and Gabe could not have been more blessed to have his attention in such a fun and inter-active environment where the kids have formed true friendships and are well and truly on their way in following their dreams. We have seen Gabe’s confidence grow in a very short space of time which is brilliant – thank you!

I have been managing the Perth office of Vivien’s Model Management for the past 15yrs and take pride on showing initiative on providing great opportunities to the talent we represent here in WA.

I knew it would be a huge coo for our talent to have the opportunity to be coached in acting by Myles Pollard and that they would greatly benefit from it. So, I approached Myles to see if he would be interested in teaching our talent.

So, when the opportunity arose to secure Myles Pollard to hold an intensive 2 x day Acting Workshops with our models and development division I jumped at the chance.

Who could have predicted that one of our bright new faces, at the time 16yr old Courtney Eaton would land a major movie role in the new Mad Max movie,” FURY ROAD” after having the chance to be taught by Myles Pollard.

He was truly amazing and on board with Vivien’s and Court all the way, coaching her with her acting through the whole process as well as filming her audition for us.

We are so delighted and excited to have the opportunity to have Myles provide such great mentoring and coaching for our Models!

Having the opportunity to work closely with Myles has been a blessing and a breath of fresh air. For an individual to truly learn and understand the delicate and complex skills of an actor, ideally, they need to learn from someone who has first mastered the art themselves. Myles offers this rare opportunity.

With amazing energy, passion and incredible patience, Myles mentors his students in a safe yet challenging way, enabling them to push their own boundaries and develop a deeper level of confidence. All of this he manages to do with a contagious enthusiasm.

As a direct result of how Myles structures, delivers and executes his courses, I’ve been able to put into practice all of the tools which he so eagerly and openly shared, and I have noticed the quality and professionalism of my work progress in ways I could not have imagined, and in such a short space of time.

Myles is not only a talented actor, he is also a gifted director, facilitator, and mentor. He is genuine, supportive and encouraging towards every individual, no matter their level of skill and experience.

I can say with absolute confidence that I would recommend Myles to anyone who ‘seriously’ wants to take their acting skills to the next level. The saying goes ‘that when the student is ready, the teacher appears’, Myles was that teacher for me and l am extremely grateful!’

I alongside a class full of other budding actors took the plunge and had a crack at Myles Pollards acting workshop over the previous two weekends and I am so glad I did.

From day one Myles warm nature and affable personality broke through every persons nerves and walls opening them up and relaxing them making us all comfortable in the previously perceived uncomfortable.

Myles showed and explained to us how our own personalities, the power of script analysis, passionate objective hunting and committing 100% ("jumping off the cliff") all combine together to make a great actor but the greatest tool is to simply act in the moment.

Even with a large class Myles was able to divide his attention evenly between all students allowing us to grow, by the last day the leaps and bounds everyone had made utilizing the lessons learnt was evident. The confidence that beamed from every direction and the performances that just sucked you in from the moment of "ACTION!" were all products of this course.

I cannot recommend this workshop enough.
